    MOBI Tanis Rideout À Above All Things PDF/EPUB ✓ Above All eBook å À above book, things ebok, Above All mobile, Above All Things MOBII had high hopes for this book An explorer climbing Mount Everest and his wife's perspective as well How interestingBut I was so wrong Here's a list of what I didnt like1 The book is supposed to be from from the perspective of the wife Ruth and George the explorer Although I'm ok with others in the story she pops in explorer Sandy's perspective Why? It doesn't fit It feels out of place He's like a third wheel2 Ruth is such a boooooring character All she thinks about is her husband I understand it was 1924 but I do not believe women were this empty I just didnt care about her Her perspective doesn't add to the story 3 I don't understand why Ruth's written over a day and George over wks or months This was confusing and annoying What was the point in this?4 Why would people climbing a dangerous mountain suddenly get a little snapshot of a
